    I have been working at REA Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance!
    Lots of perks (food, celebrations, flexible hours, yoga classes, in-house massage, bring your dog to work, pay by donation baristas)
    Collaborative and intelligent colleagues.
    Cross-functional teams.
    Opportunity to generate ideas and make things happen for all roles types and all experience levels.
    Hack days for employees to work on ideas they are passionate about.
    Volunteering opportunities.
    Diversity and cultural values.
    Guilds and interest groups to help grow employees.
    Chances for internal role changes.
    Rituals that help teams self-manage. (retros, stand ups, planning)
    Most employees are passionate about what they do and committed to learn and self-improve.
    Chances to explore all aspects of design including: research, motion, interaction, writing, visual design.
    Work on products that Impact at the national level (millions of users!).
    Environment that encourages failing fast and learning.
    Women in tech and mentorship programs.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and discoverability of projects across the business means duplication of work and sometimes create missed opportunities. (true of any enterprise level org though)
    Design practice is growing and improving, but is less mature than expected considering the maturity of products.
    Processes may not always be clear upfront, but you are given the opportunity to create and experiment with your own methods.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
    The culture and values of the company are the true strength of the company.
    You empower and grow your people, and in turn, they are committed to help grow the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at REA Group (Richmond, Victoria) in August 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 5 stages:
    - Phone screening: making sure I was an appropriate candidate.
    - Take home Toy Robot challenge: looking at my architectural design and approch to problem solving.
    - Pairing interview: extend the toy robot challenge while pairing with a senior from REA. This stage tested how I approach unfamiliar problems, communication and how I react to feedback/suggestions.
    - Technical interview: whiteboard explanation of the architecture of a system I have worked within
    - Culture interview: STAR/CAR style questions to identify how I react to certain problems.
